MODELS AND TYPES OF Mooring Buoys :

MBM Mooring Buoys are especially designed for mooring big vessels, however they can be used for a wide range of applications such as off-shore prospecting platforms, fuel hose holders, weather stations support, etc.

Thanks to their solid construction, they are virtually unsinkable, even against a strong impact. The manufacture process is the same than the one used for vessel mooring fenders in ports, ready to withstand repeated collisions without deforming.

A self-contained signal lantern is integrated inside the buoy structure, thus avoiding possible shocks during mooring works. Designed according to IALA Recommendations.
